Overall Member Rating
Food gone down hill
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We never saw the person who made up our room the entire time but whoever it was did an excellent job. We only went to one adult comedy show and the comedian was very good. The movies on deck were pretty good, except for the drunks who were very loud one night and you could hardly hear the sound track for the movie. The food was great last year on the Dream and the wait staff asked your name. I don't know if Carnival is trying to save money, but the selection was not as good as on the Dream and not one wait staff More asked our names. In Cozumel my husband went deep sea fishing. We later went shopping, but where we were docked was not near the main shopping district, you would have to take a cab there and back. Limon is a very poor and dirty town, we went on an excursion through the rain forest and saw mostly birds and Jesus Christ lizards. Where we docked in Panama was also a very poor and somewhat dirty town. We did the transcontinental train excursion and this was very comfortable. We were lucky enough to see a cargo ship going through the locks. The staff that we ran into in the halls were all very friently. We did eat one night at the steak house and it was fantastic. Would we sail Carnival again, we would have to think about it. I guess you get what you pay for. Less
Cabin review: 8N8454 Aft-View Extended Balcony
Three small closets, room seemed smaller and the extended balcony was nice except when it rained and sun was in your face. Would not book this kind of balcony again.Read All Aft-View Extended Balcony (8N) Reviews >>
